Our second time at the hotel. Staff is great, quality and the rooms and grounds are also great. The only question on whether to come back again or not are the service prices. 10usd for one scoop of ice cream at the lobby bar, are you kidding me?? Over 250usd for a very simple dinner for two at the beach... More

Absolutely beautiful property, with spacious rooms. Was there for business meeting. Had been told Sanya is Asia's Hawaii. I have to say that the beaches and water do not compare in any way to Hawaii but if you find yourself in Sanya, this is the place to stay. No place to buy drinks/snacks other than the crazy expensive mini bar... More
